Poor Scotland. Tough loss against Canada, who played with a 65 avg Beater.
But Jamet killed them with 57% Saves

7 Westerners players participated in National Team games today. Really excited the focus on those countries is paying off. Especially the Brazil v. USA game, 6 players in that one alone! Hopefully the Elephants continue that with the newer countries and get Nigeria that seeker.

Just a quick question as I couldn't find an answer: How do players get into the national team?

There are NPC national coaches that select the lineup for each national team. They scout across all divisions for the best average skill (excluding charisma) and take mood and position proficiency into account.

By the way, I just fixed part of this script. I noticed something was wrong when I saw that Nigeria actually had 7 players in the game, but played without a Seeker yesterday. A bug that would have gone unnoticed with any other nation that actually has a dedicated Seeker.

Hopefully Japan can change it this worldcup, but surely in four seasons, when my Islanderplayers had time to develop.
Maybe they have a small chance against Argentina and they should win against india.
